Leaderboard filtering issues

Just started looking at the Leaderboard in the menu. Not sure I understand how it works, but if I choose Sweden I see a lot of runners in the top who do not seem to be Swedish. A guess is that it contains any runner who has at any time run in Sweden?
If so it doesn’t seem relevant! I would like to see a top list of Swedish runners! But how to determine those? In your profile you can set default city, so maybe the leaderboard should contain all runners who have a default city in Sweden?

Yeah it includes anyone who has ever finished a street in the chosen city/region/country.
It’s definitely awkward, but I haven’t had a chance to sit down and fully consider different behaviors.

I don’t think it’s necessarily a problem that someone who has only finished one street in e.g. Sweden is included in the Leaderboard while filtering on Sweden … I think the problem is that the displayed stats (and therefore the ordering) aren’t also scoped to Sweden (which would push that person down to the bottom of the list, even if they’re very high on the global Leaderboard).

I’ve got some ideas, now that this post forced me to think about it for a minute :smile:


Good point, I was thinking about including only runners based in this country, but a better take would be to only include runs in this country

Also from my side, this is strange visualization when filtering the leaderboard. I would expect when filtering on a country, it would show the one with the most streets count in that country on top.

…just a short post mentioning that I still haven’t fixed this :sweat_smile: because I’ve closed Country-specific leaderboards - #28 by JamesChevalier in favor of keeping the conversation here

Just on the country leaderboards as the other thread is closed. Two things:

  • If I filter by UK and then search for my name, it indicates how many streets I’ve done for that country (region in my case, being England under the UK). But it does not show me what my ranking is, I have no idea.
  • Secondly, are we able to show the country ranking on our profile alongside the global ranking? That seems like the most logical place to showcase the ranking.

I don’t, currently, store the Region or Country ranking values for us. That would be a great addition to Ideas

As far as how to display that info on the profile… I’d probably need to only show the region/country for the default city (set in the Settings page) because the current leader has run in 84 countries & I’m not about to try to figure out how to cleanly display that much info :rofl:

Oh yeh sorry I was definitely referring only to displaying one country, from a drop down. Primarily for where based but some people may have moved somewhere new and have lots of coverage in a different/previous country.
